Basicly, on opening, ram previewing and using the timeline after effects literally minimizes and opens hundreds of times in a few seconds. This results in explorer crashing

Thanks for the specs, but it's only partial information.

Based on that partial information, I have some recommendations:
  • If you installed the KLite Codec Pack, you need to do a total and complete system reinstall from the ground up, ESPECIALLY the operating system. This is NO JOKE: this is dead-serious advice from Adobe's Todd Kopriva.
  • Since we don't know your AE version, nor the effects applied to the footage, you should transcode the video footage to a Quicktime Movie in the PNG codec to eliminate the possibility of long-gop codecs causing problems.
  • Turn off multiprocessing. 8 gigs may seem like a lot, but it really isn't in AE terms.

None of those things worked? You can provide additional information to make a diagnosis, a list of which you'll find here:
